0-3 for MLB last night on 3 matchups that seemed to be absolute locks. I’d double down if we had the same matchups today and I liked those a lot. For those of you who played the DFS lineup, that cashed in tourneys. Big day today!
Round 3 matchups:
Thomas (-1.5) over Finau - JT shot a 67 yesterday and he had a tough shot out of the bunker on 18. Finau shot a 74 yesterday...if you aren’t comfortable taking the -1.5 stroke spread then absolutely jackhammer the moneyline on JT straight up over Finau.
Day over Grace - Jason Day had a rough 75 in round one but he bounced back yesterday and shot a 71. Grace shot a 73 in round one and two. I like Jason to have a BIG Day today 👀
Woods over Poulter - not just a Tiger hype pick here. He’s had a couple tough days and has had a couple tough breaks but I think he will go on a nice run today. If Poulter bets on himself to beat Tiger today, he won’t be pounding his chest like he was last weekend.
White Sox (Giolito) (-110) ⚾️⚾️⚾️ - the White Sox starting lineup has had good success against Fuller with a .303 avg in 76 at bats and Abreu has taken him deep once. Lucas Giolito will be starting for the Sox and he is a young but very talented starter. This is his first full season in the Majors (he’s 23) but he’s been called up at points over the last two seasons. He’s never allowed more than 4 earned runs in a start at the big league level. This Tigers lineup only has 15 career at bats against him but they only have 3 hits in those 15 at bats. The White Sox should score more than 4 runs today and I like Giolito to continue his trend of earned runs allowed. Miguel Cabrera is also questionable for this game which makes it even more appealing.
Rays/Red Sox Under (8.5) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - I’m really liking this pick. Porcello allowed 1 run in 5.1 innings pitched last week against the Rays. Faria pitcher 4 innings and only allowed 1 run against the Sox last Sunday.4 out of the 5 games between these two teams have gone under 8.5 this season. Still not sold? It snowed in Boston last night and it’s currently 37 degrees. Not ideal weather for hitters swinging wood. Loving the under today.
Orioles/Yankees Over (9.5) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - both lineups have hit the opposing pitchers hard. Let’s start with Os. They have a .337 avg and 4 homeruns in 98 at bats against Sonny Gray. The Yanks have a .357 avg, .631 slg%, and 4 homeruns against Chris Tillman who comes into today with a 9.00 ERA. The temp is a high of 49 today in NYC so not brutal. I think it’ll be a fucking homerun derby at Yankee Stadium today.
Flyers / Rangers OVER (6) 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - here’s a good one. Flyers day games always go over. It’s really a great situation where both teams will be motivated. The Flyers need to win to clinch the final Wild Card spot in the East. The Rangers are saying “Fuck these guys, let’s play spoiler.” Good ol Philly vs New York rivalry. These two teams have played 3 times this season, 2 have gone over 6 (7-4 Flyers, 4-3 Flyers) and one pushed at 6 (5-1 Rangers). This is the play of the day 🚨 OVERRRRR!
